The [Friday] Papers

"Disgraced Fox Lake Police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz was portrayed as a hero immediately after his staged shooting death, but his personnel records, released by the village Thursday after months of delay, show a much different story: an officer who repeatedly faced complaints that he was drunk in public, deceptive and sexually harassed women," the Sun-Times reports.

"In a Feb. 1, 2009, letter sent to the village mayor, submitted by anonymous members of the Fox Lake Police Department, officers complained about Gliniewicz making threats and sexually harassing a dispatcher; having to be escorted out of bars by bouncers because he was highly intoxicated; stiffing another bar on a $300 tab; taking his family on vacation to Wisconsin in his squad car; grabbing women's breasts at department Christmas parties; and being found repeatedly drunk in public and being belligerent with officers who confronted him."

And that's just the start. Go read the whole thing and wonder, as I did, how he kept his job for so long in the first place. That's something the Fox Lake Police Department has to answer for.

UNO In Ruino
"The United Neighborhood Organization - once the city's most powerful Hispanic community group - is 'on the brink of insolvency,' threatening the future of six schools serving 4,000 Chicago students, the group's chief executive officer says," the Sun-Times reports.

Well, they ran their schools like a business. Unfortunately, that business was Enron.

If they go under, will the schools be taken over by a charter bank? Ha ha ha.

"In a letter Thursday to the UNO board obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, CEO Rick Cerda wrote, 'We may have no option left than to file for bankruptcy.'

"Cerda wrote that a bankruptcy filing by the not-for-profit organization would have a 'domino effect' on six taxpayer-funded, privately run charter schools now operating in buildings owned by UNO."

As the article later notes, the buildings are owned by UNO, but "were constructed largely with state taxpayer dollars."

Police Reporting
"Chicago police officers have been disciplined for reading a police report involving Mayor Rahm Emanuel's son, police said," NBC5 Chicago reports.

"The police report dates back to last December when Zack Emanuel was mugged near his North Side home and his cell phone was stolen.

"Chicago Police News Affairs say 11 officers have been suspended, however Chicago police sources tell NBC5 there are more who have been reprimanded."

NBC5 originally reported that 200 officers had been suspended.
